No Smoke on the Water this time, but Deep Purple there is.
Maybe the most minimalistic photo I've uploaded here. And still is has countless shades between red and blue. Shot after sunset onboard M/S Vevey somewhere between Vevey and Lausanne. ISO-400.

Hello Kari! What happend to you at this Lake :)))) you are so so creative lately, and I really do love this one, I really do! You always make me happy with "nothings" that actually mean more than a million tiny things. Fantastic the different shades of purple melting into each other ... what a way to start the weekend, it is close now!!!! Enjoy, Barbara.

this image almost looks like a painting. It is minimalistic but at the same time very sophisticated since it needed a very good balance of these strong colours. The atmosphere is amazing! TFS!

It's nothing, but it's beautiful..!!! ;-)
Smoke on the Water was written during their stay at Montreux, but the link to it is well found. It's red, it's purple and between there is nothing. Very brave to post this, but i like it a lot.
Take care, Henk

Nice color tones.
Great idea to frame it like you did.

Haha...a shot that brought a smile here, I used to be a big fan of DP! Minimalist it is, but what colours! Fire in the sky!

This is just the kind of image to enlarge to huge proportions, block mount it and put it on a large, plain wall. Minimalist but beautiful.

great shot of this deep purple atmosphere.
I like that sea and sky have the same purple shades and they build a harmonic union in your picture.
Thanks for sharing this very moody image.

Beautiful composition of one of my favourites groups of the 70'. Great colours and sunrise work. It's a wonderful shot.

I like minimalism and I love this one. One of the best uploads I saw lately. The texture is amazing and the dark purple really cuts the immensity of that bloody red. Very very good.
I wish you a great 2009 and a very holy Christmas. Peace and joy to you and your loved ones.

Simply loved it!! When you get to concentrate on just the essential, photography speaks even more transparently to the senses. Here we have total abstraction of ripples that blend sky and lake, fading into a nothing of purple... Apparently, just colors and a tickle of texture, but very expressive ones.
Congratulations for the capture!
